how to create v-groove bits

I've been searching forums for info on v-groove bits in Fusion but appears these aren't really supported yet. I have this http://www.toolstoday.com/p-6009.aspx?searchEngineName=in-groove-cnc-insert-engraving-tool-body-repl... and want to know how to create in Fusion tool editor. I have seen someone say to use chamfer bit and custom create it but I can't figure out the settings to create the bit. Any help would be great.

If you want to use it for engraving set up a chamfer mill something like this. The taper angle is per side by the way.

thanks for the help. Couple questions... Why are there three flutes? Wouldn't it be 2 flutes? And what is meant by 'taper angle is per side'?

I said something like this, if you have 2 flutes put in 2, I just grabbed a tool from my library and it was set to 3. Angle per side means if you have a 90° cutter you'd enter 45°.

Great. The angle part makes sense now. Thanks for the help and explanation.

It seems that v-groove bits, particularly the carbide-tipped ones, are not fully supported in Fusion 360 yet. To replicate your v-groove bit in the Fusion tool editor, you can try using the chamfer bit as a workaround and manually create the custom settings to match the geometry of your v-groove bit. However, it might be challenging to achieve the exact specifications. Any insights or assistance from experienced users with v-groove carbide-tipped bits in Fusion 360 would be greatly appreciated.

V-groove bits and Chamfer tools are one and the same. If you have the dimensions of the V-bit you'll be able to define your Chamfer tool. There are some graphical inconsistencies, especially when you have a Vee bit that's larger than the shank, but this is largely irrelevant for most cases.
